NOT before the turbo as it will burn it up. other than that pretty much where ever its easiest. mine's about 2' from the turbo and i run this heat sink (see link below), so as not to beat up the O2s as lot of them are not meant/rated for the high temps and more importantly heat soak associated with a turbo setups. pk

from AEM instructions...

Mount the O2 sensor in the exhaust system at least 18 inches downstream from the exhaust port. If you anticipate high EGT's (over 800C), run a turbocharger, run at high RPM for extended periods of time or plan on running leaded race fuel then you must mount the sensor at least 36 inches or more downstream of the exhaust port as all of these can cause the sensor to overheat. On turbocharged engines the UEGO sensor must be installed after the turbo charger, if not, the pressure differential will greatly affect the accuracy of the unit. For accurate readings, the sensor must be mounted before catalytic converters and/or auxiliary air pumps. To prevent collection of liquids between the sensor housing and sensor element during the cold start phase, the installation angle should be inclined at least 10 from horizontal with the electrical connection upwards, see below. (Figure 2)
